Produced by Teachers TV, this video illustrates how Victoria Palmer plans and delivers a lesson looking at parts of the body, movement and exercise to a mixed group of children with age ranges from five to seven years old.
Victoria is familiar with linking the arts with other areas of her teaching but has never incorporated dance into her science lessons. She collaborates with dancer Rachel Freeman in order to plan the lesson. With Rachel's help, Victoria introduces the children to different body parts, explains how they move and demonstrates what happens to their bodies before and after exercise.
The children learn from a variety of different dance sequences, observing changes in their breathing, heart rates and temperatures.
